Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

Posting our openings to our website is #1. This saves us a lot of time and eliminates the need to have a website resource do it every time we have a new opening. Prospective candidates can email us directly.

Cons

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.

  • I need to take some time to rename some of the field names. The nice thing is I can do most of this myself as the administrator. I haven't been quick about knowing where to go in the system (my fault).
  • Each business has custom needs and requirements. There are times when this has to be done by iSmart. They are quick to respond to requests.
  • I would like to add some additional reports to the system. I just haven't learned to do this myself (haven't taken the time) - and I haven't requested it.
  • It's a robust system with many features. Because of this - there is a learning curve. It can be difficult to get our recruiters to slow down long enough to learn really learn the system, to enter all of the information, or to check the system before calling a candidate, client or prospect that has already been contacted.
  • I would like to be able to enter 5 or 6 key words to identify the top information about a particular candidate to help with searching. Searching for candidates is a feature in the system - but this might help our recruiters remember to do it.

Alternatives Considered

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

We looked at a number of other systems that were not as comprehensive. Many were priced above our budget, and we know customer service would not have been as good

Return on Investment

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • It's eliminated the need to hire additional administrative staff. This is the single biggest savings.
  • It has saved a lot of time that allows us to spend more of our time and resources responding to clients and candidates. Our clients and candidates feel we are more service-oriented and different than our competition. We've received referrals this way. Difficult to measure - but definitely huge items.
